You start out as an ordinary mercenary, travelling across the medieval world of Aldor. The kingdom is about to fall, when a mysterious stranger makes you an offer you can’t refuse. Set off on a dangerous journey, explore beautiful lands as the leader of your own caravan, recruit new allies and fight hordes of monsters. This adventure won’t be easy, as you will have to deal with physical diseases, psychological traumas and disputes within your party.
Inspired both by classic roguelikes and modern RPGs, Stoneshard invites you to shape the future of Aldor… and die countless times along the way. Explore the grim medieval world in this epic turn-based adventure, welcoming and challenging both for roguelike veterans and newcomers.
- Explore the medieval kingdom
Embark on a journey through the vast procedurally-generated world of Aldor. Explore the dungeons, cities and forests of this once magnificent land, now ravaged by war.
- Lead your caravan
Recruit new allies to your own caravan. Be a true leader and keep morale high, so you can get help and unravel the mysteries of your loyal followers.
- Treat your wounds
Take medication or even drugs to treat physical wounds and diseases. Spot symptoms early and don’t let your hero die of fever, blood loss or broken bones.
- Fend off insanity
The horrors of a decaying, war-torn kingdom can maim your mind. Take care of your mental health and use different ways to fend off insanity and fear during your journey.
- Build an unrivaled hero
Develop your hero however you like, be it an axe-wielding mage or a potion-brewing ninja. Choose from more than 100 weapons and build a unique skill set for your character.
- Get tactical
Create your own play style, marching to victory with sword, sorcery or stealth. Study your enemies, learn to use the environment to your advantage and emerge victorious.
- Decide the fate of Aldor
Pledge your allegiance to different factions fighting over Aldor. Your choices will decide the fate of the whole kingdom. Will you save Aldor or turn the kingdom into ashes?
- Pray for victory
Follow the will of ancient Gods and gain some of their astounding power in return… if you are ready to pay the price, of course.
- Die to fight another day
Don't let death frighten you. Should your hero perish, another shall rise up and take over the caravan, continuing your quest.
